In the northern hemisphere, what side of a hurricane is considered to be the strongest?

Send your answer to cruisingcompass@bwsailing.com. A winner, who will receive a Blue Water Sailing hat, will be selected at random from the correct answers.

Thanks to last week’s Mindbender winner, Linda Hudock, for her answer to “In navigating and piloting, what is the “Rule of Thirds” used for?”: By applying the rule of thirds to the maximum speed of the current for a given area you can work out the speed of the tidal flow for any particular hour of the tidal cycle. (Also acceptable was the rule of thirds pertaining to fuel consumption.)
